I hear ya, love real bamboo rattan and thatch but I'm in Ohio and when I put those things outside
well this wonderful weather we are blessed with kills them.

That thatch is not cheap as well.
If you do use thatch make a huge cape that you can remove in the winter, but then we just had what two weeks of rain and next week calls for rain.
So that's just rot city.

And as far as how to hold it up I would use rusty old chain. (No rot, No bugs)
Or how about block and tackle with rope to hold it up, that would be nautical.
Also on the Corrugated Steel you can glue Chinese newspaper to the underside then shellac and that
makes a cool treatment, I saw this at the Mai Kai.

I like to try and do this stuff once and be done.

Good luck!
Post what you end up with.
